東郷湖

Nicknamed Crane Lake as its shape resembles a crane spreading its wings, Lake Tōgō boasts a circumference of 12km, a surface of 4km2, and depths ranging from 2-7m. This brackish lake is considered one of the San’in Region’s most beautiful scenic lakes and is home to a diverse assortment of sea life, including carp and freshwater clams, as well as ducks and other migratory birds during the winter.. The thermal spring in the center of the lake provides the hot spring water for both Hawai Onsen on its western bank and Tōgō Onsen to the south.

鶴が翼を広げたような形をしていることから「鶴の湖」の愛称で親しまれる東郷湖は、周囲約12km、面積約4km2、深さ約2mから7mの汽水湖で、山陰八景の一つにも数えられる風光明媚な湖です。フナ、コイ、シジミなどが採れ、冬にはカモなどの渡り鳥が多くやってきます。湖中からは温泉が湧き出しており、湖の西側に「はわい温泉」、南側に「東郷温泉」があります。
